Interlibrary Loan is the process by which a library requests materials from, or supplies materials to, another library. The purpose of interlibrary loan is to obtain materials not available at the Rosenberg Library. This is a free service.
BOOKS. Books not owned by the Rosenberg Library may be borrowed if a library can be located that will lend it. Patrons may request a different format or edition of a work that the library already owns if one is available. Genealogical research materials and books that are the subject of a new film may be more difficult to obtain.
AUDIOBOOKS. Audiobooks not owned by the Rosenberg Library may be borrowed through this service. These items may be difficult to obtain.
An interlibrary loan is a courtesy on the part of the lending library. Please handle it with care so that it may be returned in the shape that it was received.
- DVDs, videos, and music
- Materials owned by Rosenberg Library (unless overdue or missing for a minimum of thirty (30) days)
- Current bestsellers and items published within the past year
- Current calendar year editions of textbooks or study guides
- Rare books, reference books, or magazines (except copies of specific pages)
CLICK HERE or one of the Texas Group Catalog buttons on this page. Search the Texas Group Catalog. After locating the item you would like to request, click “Request” and select Rosenberg Library when prompted to choose a home library. Login to the catalog by entering your library card number located on the back of your card and your PIN number (the last four digits of your library card number). To complete the request, enter the “Need By” date as thirty (30) days from the current date. Requests generally do not take this long to fulfill, but entering an earlier date may cause your request to expire prematurely.
Interlibrary loans may be requested at the Rosenberg Library Reference Desk on the 2nd floor or by calling 409.763.8854 Ext. 118.
